After its inaugural winter break, the Premier League is finally back to normal with ten fixtures scheduled between Saturday and Monday.
There's plenty to think about, so we've picked out three potential highlights.
🔵⚪️ Lamps vs José at the Bridge
Frank Lampard's Chelsea side will hope to lean on history this time around with Tottenham winning only one of their last 33 away games against the Blues in all competitions (D11 L21). That one win did come as recently as April 2018 though. Chelsea boss Lampard - who made 140 Premier League appearances under José Mourinho - beat him in their first league managerial meeting back in December 2019.
Only a point separates the sides ahead of kickoff. With Chelsea picking up only five points in their last five Premier League outings and Spurs without Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and the departed Christian Eriksen, this is literally anyone's game.
🦊 Leicester should fear a City backlash
Fresh from their Champions League ban laid down by UEFA and with little to play for in the Premier League as Liverpool casually stroll towards the title, Manchester City could be a dangerous prospect this weekend. Pep's side beat West Ham 2-0 in midweek but they could have scored five or six, and they should play with plenty of freedom at the King Power, an approach that should guarantee goals and entertainment for neutral observers. The home side has actually won the last three meetings, and the last six head to heads across all competitions have produced 29 goals.
Strap yourselves in, and keep an eye on Riyad Mahrez, back at his old club just two days after his 29th birthday.
🍬 Arsenal boss out to get one over his old club
Mikel Arteta made almost 200 appearances for the Toffees, first on loan, then on a permanent basis between 2005 and 2011. It remains to be seen how sentimentally he feels about the club, but surely his priority on Sunday will to claim three points and pull ahead of the Merseyside club.
Everton looks like a new team under Carlo Ancelotti, scoring goals freely and causing damage on the counter-attack. Arsenal's record of three clean sheets in their last three matches across all competitions will come in for a stern examination against in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Arsenal old boys Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott.
There's also the threat of red-hot Brazilian Richarlison. This fixture will deliver.
Aside from these three highlights, there are seven other fixtures to keep an eye on in the Premier League this weekend between now and Monday, so take your pick.
